Chimichurri Sauce with meat

Argentine sauce commonly used with grilled or barbecued meats. However, it’s also great with fish.

This is Colin’s own take on the sauce. It’s a really great sauce and worthy of experimentation. Most traditional Chimichurri recipes do not include spring onion, coriander or sugar for example, and many people like to reduce the amount of salt. Traditionalists might use red wine vinegar. It’s all a matter of taste!
